Caldey Cayden went sober after seeing_____
A message board clarification
Its not more mercenary based. It just makes the generosity reciprocal rather than one way.
1. Make the change for scrolls of Breathe of Life only. Only the person who benefited from the scroll can replace that scroll for the person who provided it.
2. Make the change for scrolls of Breathe of Life only. The entire party can chip in to buy the replacement.
3. Make the change only for condition removal items (including death, so BOL still counts). Only the person who benefited can replace that item for the person who provided it.
4. Make the change only for condition removal items (including death, so BOL still counts). The entire party can chip in to buy the replacement.
5. Make the change for any single use, single target consumable item. Only the target of the consumable item can replace that item for the person who provided it.
Against.- Everyone should be able to chip in to help the dead guy.
6. Make the change for any single use, single target consumable item. The entire party can chip in to buy the replacement.
7. Make the change for any single use item, regardless of targets. The entire party can chip in to buy the replacement.
8. Make the change for any consumable item that goes from new to full expended during the adventure. This would have to be regardless of targets, since it could be used on more than one target, even if it's only one at a time. The entire party can chip in to buy the replacement.
9. Make the change for ANY consumable item, including those with multiple uses that aren't fully expended. I have no idea how this would work in practice without coins changing hands instead of just items, so this seems like the least realistic possibility.
Against. Charging for wand charges is too much math to be worth it.

and thats the downside to the current system, and its far bigger than any of the perceived issues
The problem is that they're complaining about well coordinated players being able to game the new system without realizing that they can still game the current system the exact same way so they're arguing against the wrong variable.
And that gaming the system amounts to, gasp, cooperating.
) To expand on the sub-tiers, is the eligible sub-tier is always based on average party level or each individual players? Is this the same with more than 4 players?
Average party level. Unless no one in the party is of the APL you wind up playing up to the individuals don't matter.
2) Am I required to distribute Chronicle Sheets to players at the end of each session, or only when there's boons or special items found in the adventure the player wants to purchase? (The session will be recorded online.)
Yes. Because while you have it recorded online, the next dm looking at their sheets doesn't have access to your recorded on line thingy. There is also information on the chronicle sheet that doesn't get recorded online, such as boons, experience, purchases, etc. Also, Most dms cannot access a players history online.
3) As a GM, I believe I can run any valid scenario any number of times, each time with a new group.
Eyup. You only get dm credit once though. I prefer to play a beatstick when i'm running a scenario i've read/dmed. Its much harder to metagame "Me kill stuff now yes? No? GOOD! " than a brilliant investigator who's supposed to put the pieces together.
Am I banned from playing in those scenarios as a player afterwards?
-Nope. You don't have to eat the scenarios like some previous campaigns made you. Just watch the metagaming when you do.
4) Can I play in a scenario multiple times if it's with different characters each time?
No. The once per scenario thing is for the player, not characters
The exception here is if you're making a legal table, or burn some DM stars.
5) Can I run combat and track hit points from an Excel spreadsheet as a GM, instead of using a Combat Pad or writing out the initiatives on the battle mat? Using the spreadsheet is what I'm familiar with in my home games.
Eyup. Battlemat, note pad, semaphore, notecards whatever works.

Do people that keep that as an insurance policy in their bags violate the rules on a regular basis on the off-chance they have someone that can cast it?
1,000 gp of weightless material that can be freely transfered back and forth between gems and coins? Yes. How else do you carry 1,000 gp?
The current system can change unwanted behavior for the better.
If i burn a breath of life scroll on someone, they CANNOT pay me back for it. If they want to siphon off wealth, they have the ultimate excuse to do so, they literally CAN NOT pay me back for it.
I cannot track your thought process on what you're complaining about, at all. Jerry can do the exact same thing now, it will just might tom money. That will work only if the players know each other. If you have a con, it doesn't.
What the proposal does is make strangers play more like friends, which is a great thing in a society where a tenant is to cooperate.

Seriously? People finagling the system to transfer a copper piece, if that? THATS what people are worried about?
They cannot buy diamond dust from you, but if they happen to be carrying their excess wealth in the form of diamond dust (as every adventurer should be) they can hand it to you.
Functionally the same thing.
The only way that would be true is if enough people were preparing to male up for their slack. This woild be a self correcting problem
And so... In order to be subtle, she sends the over-7-feet-tall undead abomination to kill people?
If cersei were any good at subtle half the series wouldn't have happened. She barely bats an eye when he shows up covered in blood.
And what... Did she predict that guy would be talking about her licking her lips?
I got the impression that wasn't the first time he told that story.
How did he even hear that guy talking? He wasn't inside the tavern (or someone would have noticed the giant armored zombie sporting the lannister's guard uniform.
It was an outdoor tavern/beer garden and he wasn't exactly quiet.
But unchanged or redeemed, Cersei never sent queen's guard to kill random peasants in taverns. She barely even thought ab
..before now. Now she does. So she's getting worse, more violent and more desperate.
There is no indication that she ever expected to have to fight Lannister guards before that one scene last episode.
In the books, her walk of shame ousted her from anything resembling power. Her cousin kevin had come in as the hand? Regent? And was her primary obstacle against doing anything.
Or that she has the habit of sending Gregorstein around to kill whoever bad-mouthes her (which should be many, many people at this point).
So this can't be the scene that establishes that she does do that because....?
Who knows... Maybe she sent Gregorstein to buy OJ and he heard the speech on his way back from the grocery store. Why would he wait 'til the guys was alone, though? He didn't care about subtlety in life, why would he care as a zombie?
Better at following orders now?
Let's be honest here... The scene just wasn't very well thought. The writers wanted san excuse to show off Gregorstein's strength and didn't bother to come up with anything too elaborate.
If thats what it is i'm fine with it. I laughed for a whole minute at it.
It could also hint at something to come (remember many plots aren't just inching ahead of the books they're shooting past it)
It could also show that cersei hasn't changed a bit despite her humiliation... if anything it went and made her worse.
She has a hundred lanister guards for that. She only needs Gregorstein if she needs to fight those guards.

I don't think anyone is going to be "forced" to buy a scroll of heal to cure the sniffles.
Other than that.. whats the worst case scenario ? Everyone chips in a few gold pieces for the 750 gp oil of daylight? Someone "has" to pay back the 5k for a breath of life instead of the 8k resurrection?
You can have prior arrangements made with your faction. Surely you can have the same arrangements made with your own party?
Mike Lindner wrote:
No one is talking about mandatory restitutions.
So taking the idea of mandatory restitutions is at least sending it down the slippery slope. You are further adding a bizarre level of idiocy where you overspend on way more than the other player needs, AND on top of that can't/don't ask for the consent of the other player first. This is three steps removed from what anyone is talking about.
Mike Lindner wrote:
The problem I have with mandatory reimbursement is you can effectively tax other players. Someone goes unconscious. Use a heal scroll (instead of simply stabilizing them). The target has to pay for it even though they had no choice in whether it was used on them.
Is anyone suggesting mandatory reimbursement under ridiculously contrived conditions?
If yes, please quote them.
If not please stop pretending this is a plot to screw people over.
Including the newbies or just the people that should know better?
If the latter i'm really not surprised. At a convention there's no chance/expectation of reciprocity.
Just call it the Michael Jackson clause
Pretty much the same way we do Jo's ressurection?
Question; When a Kitsune is in Human form, (or fox shape if that feat is taken), do they lose their Agile racial trait?
Unknown/Dms call. It could be from their body shape, the balance of their tail, or a cultural penchant for kung fu fighting.
As a practical matter, i wouldn't bother recalculating it.
EDIT: What about their "Kitsune Magic(EX/Sp)"?
I'm leaning very heavily towards that one not being form dependent. Magic is more inherent in something being than its shape.
EDIT2: Bonus Question: Is a Kitsune in human form immune to size-changing and involuntary polymorph spells?
Probably. Keep in mind though that baleful polymorph (and anything based on it) removes all the polymorph effects and then goes to town. After that, a kitsune that knows they're a kitsune can take a standard action to resume their form (as a shapechanger) A kitsune that misses the will save probably doesn't have the knowledge that they can do that.
